Randy Dixon, Art + Architecture
Located on a one quarter-acre down-slope lot that overlooks the Bay, San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge, the work studio is separated from the home by a garden and pergola. The 1250 sf two-story studio is positioned at the top and front of the site in order to facilitate the removal of crated artwork. The home, tucked behind and down sloped of the studio, takes advantage of a commanding view of the Bay with judicious placement of glazing. The 2300 sf house is organized in quadrants about a central skylight that bathes the upper two stories of the home. The four quadrants become the kitchen, dining, living and study opening onto each other and a deck that overlooks the vista beyond. The master bedroom is a loft overlooking the living areas with guest rooms on a third level below the main floor.
